  • GO FISH (SOLD OUT)

    December 6, 2019 6:00 PM

    Go Fish will be our last public class for 2019 since December is fully booked for holiday parties. Frankly, the biggest challenge of all for home cooks is getting good quality fish at retail shops. We recommend your local farmers market these days for fresh fish or if you live in SF, Nijiya market in Japan Town is great. This time of year, we have local Black cod from Bolinas that is just incredible. We have local mussels as well but we often opt for mussels from Prince Edward Island (PEI). This class is also all about the first crop of winter citrus which we’ve been waiting excitedly for. We’ll be using local citrus in every dish including Meyer lemons, Mandarins, Yuzu, grapefruits and Makrut limes and lime leaves.

  • DUNGENESS CRAB CLASS

    January 17, 2020 6:00 PM

    As I write this menu, Dungeness crab season is set to begin commercially in about ten more days. It just opened recreationally and this weekend I plan to head to Bolinas to drop a few traps in the water. Catching, cooking and eating fresh Dungeness crab never loses it’s thrill; it’s one of the true joys of living on the West coast. That’s why we have to have an entire class menu dedicated to all things Dungeness crab. Well, except dessert. Don’t miss our annual Dungeness Crab Cookout, we only offer it once a year.

  • ITALIAN COOKING

    January 24, 2020 6:00 PM

    After eleven years, our Italian cooking classes are still always the most requested. I think it’s because Italian food is so ingredient driven and approachable. And of course, it’s delicious! For most of us it’s also familiar and evokes certain food memories from our childhood. But mostly it’s just delicious! We love teaching home cooks how to make incredible pasta and classic sauces from scratch. And let’s face it, Arancini might be the only thing that even comes close to being as good as pizza. So if you can’t get to Sicily this month, you might as well come learn how to make these at home. It’s the next best thing.

  • GO FISH

    February 28, 2020 6:00 PM

    Go Fish is our all fish cooking class. Frankly, the biggest challenge of all for home cooks is getting good quality fish at retail shops. We recommend your local farmers market these days for fresh fish or if you live in SF, Nijiya market in Japan Town is great. This time of year, we are getting amazing tuna loins from Hawaii for the Poke. We have good local mussels but we often opt for mussels from Prince Edward Island (PEI) for their size and taste. Especially for this awesome winter mussel and citrus salad. The real star here is learning how to make an amazing Thai green coconut curry from scratch. We should still be getting beautiful local Black Cod from Bolinas for this dish. We’ll also use local Rockfish and learn how to filet the whole fish.

Students say...

"This is a real cooking class - everyone has their own station, it’s conducted in a commercial kitchen in San Francisco and you get real hands on experience and training."

"Wow, what a spectacular experience. I was expecting a high-level overview of what we would be cooking plus some hands-on stuff, but over the course of four hours Jordan imparts such a deep set of cooking skills and knowledge that I feel that I learned more here than I had in the last four years. Jordan's ability to handle a group of total strangers working with sharp knives and boiling pots and pans is awe-inspiring."
